SP Law offers assistance with Tenancy Deposit Claims in Northampton, Wellingborough, Kettering and surrounding areas. We can also offer assistance for claims from further afield.
Landlords have an obligation to pay a tenant’s deposit into one of the three government approved tenancy deposit protection schemes. These schemes are: MyDeposits, DPS and TDS.
If the landlord fails to lodge the deposit with one of the three schemes within 30 days of the date on which the deposit was paid by the tenant, the landlord will be subject to a penalty. Deposits paid between 06.04.2007 – 05.04.2012, needed to be paid into a scheme within 14 days.
The landlord must ensure that the deposit remains protected throughout the tenancy.
In addition to protecting the deposit, the landlord must also give the tenant full prescribed information within the same timeframe. The information includes:-
The prescribed information also needs to be signed by the landlord and the tenant must have been given an opportunity to sign to confirm the contents.
The penalty for failing to comply with the deposit protection regulations is that the tenant can sue the landlord for between 1-3 times the amount of the deposit paid. In addition to this, the landlord may not be able to serve a section 21 notice until the position with the deposit has been rectified.
You can make a claim whilst still living at the property or if you have left as long as you have had a tenancy and paid a deposit in the last 6 years.
Depending upon the value of the claim, we will offer under a ‘No Win No Fee’ agreement. However, you will need to pay for any disbursements incurred such as court fees.
In order to make a claim, we will require the following from you:-
